A Nigerian man that recently survived COVID-19 has called on people to believe in the existence of the virus and take it seriously.

Akinwale Oluwaleimu took to his Facebook page to narrate how he defeated the virus and to thank family members for coming to his rescue.

According to him, he began to treat malaria when he was feeling feverish until he realised that his symptoms were COVID-19 symptoms.

Oluwaleimu said his symptoms included fever, cough, loss of smell, loss of taste, body pains and weakness of the body.

He wrote on Facebook: "The family values I got during the period truly helped me physically and emotionally."

According to him, some of the medications he used included Vitamin C, Longrich Cordyceps Militaris and Black Ginger, among others.

Oluwaleimu, however, complained about the negligence of staff of the COVID-19 testing centre at Akowonjo Primary School.

He said he got to the centre around 8:30 am but the staff arrived around 11.am.

Oluwaleimu said he was tested around 12:30 pm and was told that result would be sent in 72 hours with no warnings, precautions or advice.

According to him, it is one week already and he still does not have the result.
